Wash produce before use
Prep and roast the fish
Heat the oven to 400°F.
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel.
On a sheet pan, rub the fish all over with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil (place skin side down for the barramundi or snapper); season the fish with salt and pepper and the ras el hanout. Roast until the fish is opaque and flaky, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal.
Cook the couscous
- Zest and juice the lemon, keeping the zest and juice separate; set aside the juice for the lemon yogurt.
In a medium sauce pot, bring ¾ cup [1½ cups] lightly salted water to a boil with the Moroccan spice blend and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] butter (from your pantry), if using. Stir in the couscous and cranberries and remove from the heat. Cover and let stand until the couscous is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 6 to 8 minutes. Fluff with a fork, then add the lemon zest, almonds, and carrots and stir gently to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. While the couscous is cooking, prepare the lemon yogurt.
Make the lemon yogurt
In a small bowl, stir together the Greek yogurt, 1½ tablespoons [3 TBL] lemon juice, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, and up to ¼ teaspoon [½ tsp] sugar (from your pantry), if using. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the couscous and fish to individual plates. Top the fish with the lemon yogurt and serve.
